Anybody whose been on it want to give some really in depth details of how this ride was and where you would place it on your Top 10 list if you would.

Heres a link to an Opening Day clip i found on youtube. Short crappy clip but you can get a glimpse of the speed. The peoples reactions to it flying by are funny, kinda like watching fireworks...

Here is a link to some videos of media day, including POV video (at the end of the soundbites video is a full POV, 3:46 into it).

Looks like an airtime machine :airtime:

I posted this on Great Adventure Updates, but I wanted to share it with you guys. Here is my review of El Toro.

Well after 30 rides on El Toro, all I have to say is I am still debating which I like more, El Toro or S:RoS in SFNE(Yes, it is that amazing).


Lets go back to yesterday morning, where I boarded the train in the back seat for my first time. After being stapled, we exited the station and go around the turn and head up the lift. After hearing the three horns we start to fly up the lift hill(which is 10% faster than MF). You actually even get a little pop of air as you crest the top of the lift, then you have no time to look around before you actually get tugged down the first drop and you get extreme ejector airtime!!

You fly down the lift going 70 miles per hour before bottoming out into an amazing headchopper before going up the first hill getting more amazing ejector air. Then you fly down the hill and no time to breathe enter then second hill even providing more ejector air. It is that insane.

Then you enter the awesome turnaround which is smooth and has some really good banking on it. You then enter the third hill which provides a good pop of air but not as extreme as the drop, first hill or second hill. But it is still good. Then you enter the hill before the bank and fly by the station and get some extreme headchoppers which make you think twice about keeping your hands up.

After all that excitement, you hit the bank turn and you gotta love that little headchopper they made before the hill over RT. Now, this hill is by FAR the best hill ever created! Every seat on this coaster gets the most AIRTIME I have ever expierenced in my life, I can never get enough of that hill.

Then it gets even better, after that hill you hit the twister section which is just crazy. You go left, then you go right, then left and then you hit that 180 degree turnaround. Just talking about it makes me want to go back there and try it again! You then go over a little hill and then slide into the brakes nice and smoothly.

This coaster has everything you need, its soo smooth and its AMAZING! I am seriously trying to decide if it's better than S:RoS in SFNE. It is currently sitting in my number 2 spot overall and it is now my favorite woodie.

GO RIDE EL TORO!!!

On weeweeslap.com, there is a guy who went for both rides at their openings, and said Toro is slightly better.

Personally, I can't believe how good the reviews have been for this coaster, I'm pumped for this weekend.

I spoke to someone at Media Day today who also said he preffered ET to Voyage.

I loved ET. It's the best coaster in the park, and my new #1.
